Loyola University New Orleans seeks a dean to lead its world-class College of Music and Fine Arts (CMFA). 

As chief executive officer of the college, the dean is its intellectual and artistic leader and reports directly to Provost Marc Manganaro.

The new dean will arrive at Loyola University at a time of great strength as well as potential for the College of Music and Fine Arts. With responsibility for the college’s academic and artistic programs; its faculty, staff, students, and facilities; and its performance and exhibition programs, the dean will further the mission and expand the resources of the college with broadly delegated authority from the Provost. The Dean will articulate a shared vision that defines the standards of excellence, direction of growth for the college, and new and multi-disciplinary connections that are possible across the university. The successful candidate will be results oriented, entrepreneurial, and visionary, skillful at leading through change and building a future which faculty colleagues have collaborated to shape and are invested in and support, and proficient at both the large picture and the details that support optimal efficiency and effectiveness.

Loyola University New Orleans is a Catholic institution founded in 1912 that emphasizes the Jesuit tradition of educating the whole person. One of 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States, Loyola has a rich history and Jesuit influence dating back to the early 18th century when the Jesuits first arrived among the earliest settlers in New Orleans. Loyola is located in the Uptown section of New Orleans, one of the city’s most prestigious residential neighborhoods and 15 minutes from downtown and the historic French Quarter.

The College of Music and Fine Arts occupies a position of prominence within the university, a prominence particularly distinctive among Jesuit institutions. The college’s national reputation, its contributions to the world of visual and performing arts, and its role in supporting and reinforcing the fabric of New Orleans are at the heart of Loyola New Orleans’s identity.
